The Viper and the Urchin #0.5

Letting someone get close can be dangerous…

Rory is a starveling, barely carving a survival for herself on the docks. And then Daria, older, brash, full of life, barrels into her world. She’s a talented pickpocket, but she needs someone to team up with. Mesmerised by Dasia’s charisma, Rory accepts.

The two girls make an awesome pickpocketing duo, and for the first time in her life, Rory has a real friend and dreams for the future beyond survival. But Daria has a secret. A secret that Rory soon realises could destroy everything.

As she tries to get Daria out, Rory learns the true cost of letting someone get close.

The Pickpocket is the prequel to The Viper and the Urchin, a compelling, character-driven series, full of quirky characters, heart and humour, set in a richly-imagined world.
